We recently wrote about and also ways that ThingLink is supporting flipped learning from across the globe. Our education community continues to impress us with new concepts and iterate on the examples. From the US to Scotland educators are sharing new home learning designs or 'choice boards' with differentiated activities and a less threatening approach for learners and their parents and carers.
New ThingLink Spotlights!
We recently shared with you a blog post detailing ways colleges and universities are creating virtual tours and field trips overcoming current challenges. We wished to dive into this topic a little further and share with you some of our recent favourites and show how you can begin to recreate these yourself (and be a little bit playful with our format!) In this ThingLink Spotlight hear directly from Luke Hobson and how he creatively tackled some of the challenges all education establishments are finding at the moment.

April is exciting times for high school seniors, who throughout the world are receiving admission decisions from colleges and universities.

Curators at Middlebury College Museum of Art in Vermont, Sarah Laursen and Sarah Briggs, developed Vermont Art Online in direct response to the COVID-19 crisis.

"At a time when billions of people around the world are separated from one another, museums can bring us together.” - Ernesto Ottone, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture
ThingLink, an award-winning Finnish education technology company, announced today that they have joined the Google for Education Integrated Solutions Initiative. For ThingLink, this is a major new partnership to support education and enterprise organisations globally in their increasing use of technology for learning using multiple platforms and devices.
In most countries educators have been asked to transition their classroom to the cloud, overnight. Most teachers, many now staying at home with their own children, have limited time, skills, and experience using digital tools and collaboration platforms for remote learning.
When schools are closed, students spend lots of time on their laptops and mobile devices. How can you put those devices to use in a way that develops their creativity? Schools, districts and cities: Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to activate your ThingLink account today.
